Iridium Based Surface Beacon
Platform Turned Upside Down? No Problem.

The Rover is an independently powered, self-contained satellite transceiver designed to work in the most rugged ocean environments. Things don’t always follow plan, so the Rover features independant dual GPS and Iridium patch antennas so that in the event the surface expression is flipped over, the unit will continue to record its position and transmit it back to you. Packaged in a ruggedized, UV protected, marine grade housing the Rover makes use of the low power, real time Iridium satellite constellation and GPS to reliably transmit the buoy’s position automatically or on demand at any time.

  • Two antennas at the top and bottom allow the unit to collect and transmit data even if it is capsized
